Dreighton Stoub takes ROAR 13.5T 4WD Buggy title

The 2017 ROAR 1:10 Electric Off-Road Nationals were held at The Track in Gaithersburg, Maryland, just outside of Washington D.C. last weekend. As a facility that doesn’t have a signature event, most of the competitors had never been there before. With an evolving surface and unknown preparation, it was a new challenge each day. In the up-and-coming and very competitive class of 13.5 4WD Buggy, Team Associated supported driver Dreighton Stoub started on pole. After a rough A1 from Stoub that saw privateer Jackson Brunson, also driving a Team Associated buggy, take the win, the race was on. In A2 it was another AE privateer, Will Cushing who got the win while Stoub finished second. This set the stage for a winner-take-all scenario in A3 among the three drivers. After the dust settled and the times were posted, it was a three-way tie for the win. Utilising the ROAR tiebreaker system of combined laps and times of the two best points, Stoub won the National Championship by just four seconds over Cushing, who beat Brunson by just a second while Team Associated’s AJ Maasco finishing fourth.
